A new documentary about Diana Princess of Wales proves just how insatiable the appetite is among the British public is for ever more stories on her
A documentary featuring the late Princess of Wales speaking candidly about the royal family has been slammed by United Kingdom viewers.
Indeed Diana brought up a lot of old secrets, which have never been heard before, including details of her and Charles' "odd" sex life and his affair with Camilla.
Diana candidly recalls the love affair and admits she was "playing with fire" and "got burned".
"In one [story], Charles was sitting on the toilet when she caught him."
Reportedly, Diana recalled the moment she caught Charles having phone sex with Camilla and apparently, she was the "raunchier" one. "Diana clearly saw her role as the power behind William", the cameraman explained.
Both former royal employees credit Diana with "changing the face of the British monarchy", breaking its "theatre" to engage with hard-hitting issues of public life and, most importantly, passing that legacy onto her sons.
The princess had asked a cameraman from the BBC of the track during his visits to Kensington Palace, and she was left to go to some confidences recorded.
The feature length documentary, which broadcast previously unseen recordings of the late Princess, proved controversial but pulled in big viewing figures.
As the Royal family prepare to mark 20 years since Diana's death, the photographs provide a fascinating insight into the Princess' home life, including stuffed toys, colourful tapestries, ornamental plates and countless framed photographs of her loved ones.
In the explosive recordings, made between 1992 and mid-1993 with voice coach Peter Settelen, Princess Diana revealed Charles was "all over her like a rash" and wasn't "very consistent in his courtship". After five years of unhappiness, Diana believed that her marriage was loveless and she had gone crying to the Queen and said, "I don't know what I should do", to which the Queen replied, "I don't know what you should do". Those tapes will be aired on Channel 4 in the weeks preceding Princess Diana's death anniversary.
Channel 4's controversial documentary containing never-before-seen footage of Princess Diana might have been met with mixed reaction from critics but it nevertheless has become the broadcaster's highest rating show since Gogglebox past year, pulling in 3.5 million viewers overnight.
In the tapes, Diana opened up about her upbringing, the Royal Family and her marriage to Prince Charles. "What she said on the tapes is exactly what she would say anyway, to anybody".
Diana reveals that the couple spent time together on only 13 occasions before they were Wednesday.
